CD48182 - 1/48 A-6A/E Test & Eval Intruders


Recommended Posts

CD48182 will be a 1/48 sheet dedicated to test & evaluation A-6 Intruders: aircraft with Naval Missile Center (NMC), PMTC, VX-5 and Pax River will be included.

Both high & low vis I assume?  I’ll be buying multiple sheets. 

 

Is is it possible to make sheets with just the typical Pax River tail patches/NAWC banner and standard Navy lettering/numbers?  Seems you could do a various amount of 1/48 Pax River tails (Tomcats/Intruders/Skyhawks/Harriers.....the list goes on) with just those markings.

Honestly, I only had a few high-vis options in mind; but the low-vis options are a great idea. This is the reason this subforum exists - I will look into the low-vis aircraft and make sure you can build one each of high-vis and low-vis options on the sheet.

527 dropping the Walleye should be around that timeframe. Think they were qualifying the new composite wing, but not sure. SD 202 was wearing the same NAWC banner on the orange tail around the ‘96 timeframe doing GBU-16 testing.

The low viz  gray schemes would definitely be cool. You could weather the gray and it would starkly contrast the hi-viz orange like the obsolete aircraft turned into Q-drones.

Looked good for a Tomcat:

My Prowler pics are DOA because I finally got fed up with PB, let me go find find one. The orange intakes can be tricky if you mask them (Intruder would be the same).

Here is #149486 @ PMTC with Tomahawk missile on stbd pylon, probably balanced by one or possibly two fuel tanks on the port pylon(s) as in the Walleye photo above, but not shown here (no shadow under port wing) for some reason.  Tomahawk is bright orange with black rectangular reference markings & white upper tail fin.

I'm very interested by this two but in 1/72 (too little flat and too many kits 🙂 ).

I’ll echo what Collin is saying. A basic marking sheet will go a long way covering several aircrafts.

 

I guess I’ll be the first to ask, any thoughts about making these into 1/32? Please, don’t make me beg lol.

Hi Corey,

 

This sheet will be part of the July batch.  The 1/48 sheets I will release in June are the B-57 and QF-4B Navy Drone Phantoms.
